It’s World Alzheimer’s Day on Friday 21 September and the Mad Hatters at Botanica Whangarei are showing their support for the Northland branch of the Alzheimer’s charity by having a fund raising tea party with all profits from the sale of special tea party cupcakes going to Alzheimer’s New Zealand.
"Why not take this opportunity to make a visit to our wonderful facility; a peaceful oasis in the hustle and bustle of town, have a game of flamingo croquet and support a very valuable local charity," suggests WDC Conservatory Manager Helen Cairns.
"We’re also happy to be able to offer a little daytime treat to some of our older residents thanks to the kind sponsorship of Morris & Morris Funerals Ltd. Guests from our local rest homes have been invited to take tea with us and we’re grateful to Morris & Morris for their kind contribution.
"So come along to Botanica (Council’s conservatory and filmy fern house) on First Avenue from 10am on Friday 21 September and treat yourself to a cupcake or two or three or four… and a free cup of tea!"
